We can often measure our level of happiness based upon our own job satisfaction. We spend most of our day working so naturally it takes up most of the scale. Psychologist Barry Schwartz discusses the importance of work satisfaction and finding meaning and purpose to our daily duties. Jobs that pay less or may appear more medial than others can often produce far greater satisfaction due to the meaningful work employees feel they accomplish. We spend nearly 40 years working to save for retirement, it’s about time we start working with joy. “You don’t need to be working for an organization that saves lives to find meaning and purpose in what you do. You just need to be doing work that makes people’s lives better”- Barry Schwartz.
